Jgrashen church

Lori
VI c.

In the Lori district, to the north of Vardablur village on the shores of Dzoraget River is the Jgrashen church, dating from VI century. The church has three entrances. The window on the southern wall is inscripted with multiple grape leaves. Outside, the walls have animal-shaped inscriptions (deer, sheep-heads). These kinds of ornaments are very unique for the early mid-century Armenian monumental architectures. In the Vardablur village and its surroundings there are several chapels, fortress(X-XI cc.) and cemetery with cross-stones (XI-XIX), which have been preserved until present times.
